Junior, I agree. I don't like some brands, but I have respect for them and their followers.

But to hate a firearm or brand? No.

I just don't purchase them.

Any gun can be the best gun you have or the worst at any given time. It depends on the situation you find yourself in. If you find yourself in a contact-distance fight for your life against a humanoid perp, a .500 magnum BFR with a 10-inch barrel may be the least desirable handgun to be carrying, and a snubnosed .38 might be much more desirable. But if you are hiking in the woods, you may prefer the BFR over the .38 snubbie if you spot a bear stalking you. Also, there are many handguns costing $1500 to over $3000 that are nice to have as BBQ guns, but don't shoot any straighter than many guns costing less than $500.

junior if you want a good lefty gun and the savage fits you, give it a shot, because the savage's are very accurate and shoot well. i like the marlins over the savage's, but my reasoning is from fit, not brand or performance, as i have shot the savage's and own one right now. the marlins and the remintons fit me better when i shoulder them. i also like the ruger M77 and the winchester M70, both which are very nice rifles. if everyone liked the same color and same item, it would be a boring world. another point i will add is, sometimes people can only afford so much to get a rifle or pistol, so they want a universal and do all firearm, and there isn't anything wrong with that. i am lucky to have many at my collection and plan on adding more, some in the find are a winchester M94 in 32 win. spec., a single shot 45-70 sharps type rifle, a 30-30 lever action marlin, a remington M700 in 300 win. mag., an M1 carbine, a SA M1A, ect. ect...the list grows and changes all the time. the other day i went searching for a 30-30 in a marlin or winchester, came home with a remington M700 in 270, because of the price!

Marlin lever action in a .35 Whelen was the first firearm I ever owned. At 18 and it being the first riffle I ever fired it was nothing like the westerns on tv where nothing has recoil. I still have a scare from the scope . I was a local L.E.O so Remington was the only bolt action I ever had experiance with. Knowing it was the choice of most Police and Military snipers it seemed a safe choice when making my first purchase. Read a lot of good things about the newer savages and the're accuse trigger n stocks. Actually I've never read anything bad about the Savages.

junior, savage builds very good firearms, thats a fact. just from my personal preference, i like remington and marlins new bolt actions better. but have shot many savages over the years, and can find nothing wrong with them, performance wise. being a lefty, sometimes puts you at a disadvantage when choosing firearms, and that is a shame as it somewhat limits your options as to adapting yourself to a firearm or living with what ever is available lefthanded.

For someone just starting out a Savage can be great. I started my daughter on one ( Savage model 64 ) that was at "Dunams Sporting Goods" for $99.00 and that included a 4X scope. Then I got a 15% military discount so even with the Indiana 7% sales tax I could carry it out of the store with Ammo for a picture of Ben!

Is it a great weapon - - - I have been quite successful squirl hunting with it and we have loved it at the range. Would I like to go bear hunting with it? Not even close! But I don't want to pay the cost of ammo to put several hundred rounds on the range thru a Springfield M1A

I don't drive my Tri Axel dump truck to the grocery and I don't haul gravel in the trunk of my car.

Well, I may highly recommend a particular brand with I have & like and may express my dissappointment with another brand, but I wouldn't say I "hate" any of them. Why, my wife even has a Raven .25ACP that most folks run down, but it's never given us a problem.

Now, that don't mean that I won't have fun with a g***k owner once in a while.

I personally LOVE those threads with gunX vs. gunY ...or... caliberA vs. caliberB. I've actually found that FTF isn't a forum that has many of those, though.

People can be haters and knuckleheads on any thread and often are.
